1. In this guide, we'll look at restricting the visibility of modules.
2. Select a module to show or hide.
3. Click the 'Published' dropdown & switch to 'Draft' to hide a module.
4. A module in 'Draft' is invisible to all students.
5. Change back to 'Published' to reveal module to students.
6. Click 'Add dates and restrictions...' to add dates to a module.
7. Add a start date. Students are able to see the module and its content topics, but can’t open or view them until the start date has been reached.
8. Add a due date. Due date does not control access, but shows up under the module, and can help students be more organised, and help them prioritise activities or learning materials.
9. Add end date. If I choose to apply an ‘End Date’, this will cut off access to the module and its content topics once the selected date has been reached.
10. Click the 'x' next to a date to dismiss it.
11. Click 'Update' to apply the selected dates to your module.
12. Once applied, dates appear under the module title.
13. Applying a conditional release. Release conditions are a great way to make modules invisible until a student has met a set of criteria that you specify. Once they do, then additional content is made available to them. To add a release condition, click ‘Add dates and restrictions’.
14. Click 'Create'.
15. Click the condition type dropdown. In this example, let’s set a simple condition on the second module in our unit. This will make it invisible to students until they’ve completed the first assessment item.
16. Select your condition type. There are many different criteria you can set. In this example, we’ll set this condition type to be ‘Score on a Quiz’, a subset of the Quizzes tool.
17. Set your condition details. These will vary based on the condition type you choose. In this example, we’ll pick the quiz we’d like to target, which is our first assessment task. Then we'll set some criteria. I’m going to set it to equal to 100%.
18. Click 'Create' to build your conditional release.
19. Click 'Update' to apply the conditional release. We can now see that a student has to achieve 100% on the first assessment task before the second module of content becomes visible.
20. Conditional release is now applied. Dates and release conditions can be used together to give you fine-grained control over the access and visibility of learning materials and assessment in your unit.
